The “Service” does not include Your Data (as defined below) or any software application or service that is provided by you or a third party, which you use in connection with the Service, whether or not BuyerDeck designates them as “official integrations” (each a “Non-BuyerDeck Product”). Any modifications and new features added to the Service are also subject to this TOS. BuyerDeck reserves the right to modify or discontinue the Service (or any Service plan) or any feature or functionality thereof at any time without notice to you.

Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved.
    3. BuyerDeck reserves the right to use your name as a reference for marketing or promotional purposes on the site and in other communication with existing or potential BuyerDeck customers. For example, we might list your company on one of our web pages under lists of BuyerDeck customers. We don’t want to list customers who don’t want to be listed, so you may send an email to admin@buyerdeck.com stating that you do not wish to be used as a reference.
    4. Ownership Rights. BuyerDeck and its suppliers own and retain all right, title and interest in and to the Software, including all copyrights, patents, trade secret rights, trademarks and other intellectual property rights therein. Your possession, installation, or Use of the Software does not transfer to you any title to the intellectual property in the Software, and you will not acquire any rights to the Software except as expressly set forth in this Agreement. BuyerDeck reserves the right to discontinue the Software without notice at any time for any reason including, but not limited to launching of or discontinuing a development of a commercial version of the Software.
  5. Payment.

To the extent you use a Service plan that is made available for a fee, you will be required to select a payment plan and provide BuyerDeck accurate information regarding your credit card or other payment instrument. You will promptly update your account information with any changes in your payment information. You agree to pay BuyerDeck in accordance with the terms set forth on the site (currently, BuyerDeck.com/pricing and related pages) and this TOS, and you authorize BuyerDeck to bill your payment instrument in advance on a periodic basis in accordance with such terms.
    2. If you dispute any charges you must let BuyerDeck know within sixty (60) days after the date that BuyerDeck invoices you.

If we increase our prices for your Service plan, we will provide notice of the change on the Site and email to you at least 30 days before the change is to take effect. Your continued use of the Service after the price change goes into effect constitutes your agreement to pay the changed amount. BuyerDeck may choose to bill you through an invoice, in which case, full payment for invoices issued must be received by the date specified in the invoice.
  6. Your Data Rights and Related Responsibilities.
    1. "Your Data" means any data and content you upload, post, transmit or otherwise made available via the Services (which may include data you elect to import from Non-BuyerDeck Products you use). "Your Data" includes messages you send, files you upload, comments you make on files, profile information and anything else you create, enter or upload into the Service.

For example, we need to be able to transmit, store and copy Your Data in order to display it to you and your Buyers, to index it so you are able to search it, to make backups to prevent data loss, and so on. Your acceptance of this TOS gives us the permission to do so and grants us any such rights necessary to provide the Service to you, only for the purpose of providing the service (and for no other purpose). This permission includes allowing us to use third-party service providers (such as Rackspace Hosting Services) in the operation and administration of the Service and the rights granted to us are extended to these third parties to the degree necessary in order for the Service to be provided.
    3. If any users send us any feedback or suggestions regarding the Service, you grant BuyerDeck an unlimited, irrevocable, perpetual, free license to use any such feedback or suggestions for any purpose without any obligation to you.

However, BuyerDeck may remove or disable any Public Content at any time for any reason or for no reason at all. For example, if you upload files that do not belong to you and use the “Get Public Link” feature to make these files available publicly, we maydelete those files. We are not responsible for the accuracy, appropriateness, or legality of Your Data or any other information you and your users may be able to access using the Services.
